Step 4: Go the extra mile
Readers can explore the suggestions for further reading to take their understanding one step further.

Each title in the series is tailored to maximise understanding and achievement, to ensure that the reader really can thrive in their studies. They are the perfect course companions for any bioscience degree. Each title in the series is accompanied by the following digital resources:
- A flashcard glossary app, enabling the user to test their understanding of key terminology;
